Bill of Rights in Action: Equal Opportunity (revised)


Published 1982


An open-end film to stimulate discussion of the equal rights issue. Uses an incident in which a black factory worker is promoted over a white employee with seniority as a basis for reviewing the constitutional issues involved in establishing policies of equal employment opportunities. Actors include Andrea Sheridan Ordin (elected President of Los Angeles Police Commission in 2012), and Phil Richards, a parking lot attendant who also appeared in Wilets' film on Machiavelli. This is a revision of the original film made in 1969, necessitated by changes in the law. For more on director Bernard Wilets, visit http://www.afana.org/wilets.htm
